We went here for breakfast and I was told the only thing that is gluten free are the plain pancakes. Kinda disappointing after a long wait.

I told my server I had celiac and she knew. I didnt have to explain it to her. When I asked the server to make sure they don't put pancake mix in my eggs she didn't bat an eye. I got gf pancakes, eggs and bacon. All was very good. The pancakes were a little dry, but nothing butter doesn't fix. They were very fluffy too. Nice vibe and very friendly staff. Good coffee.

I got the Heuvos Rancheros with corn tortillas. The beans are a little underflavored, but everything else is so delicious! This restaurant also has an option for gluten free pancakes, which I might try next time :)

No true gluten free menu. 2 items are marked gluten free: gf pancakes and oatmeal. No gluten free bread options. Most items can be prepared gluten free but unsure if they are celiac friendly. Great breakfast menu otherwise. Coffee is tasty as well.

I ordered am omlette with home fries and fruit (they allowed me to sub a bread for a 2nd side.) All food was fresh and good and it came out very quickly.

On their menu they list pancakes and oatmeal as gluten free. They stated the gluten free pancakes are cooked on the same griddle as the gluten pancakes. The oats are also not certified gluten-free which probably doesn't matter to some people.

They were not able to make any of their eggs or omelettes in a separate pan, and even though the ingredients listed did not contain gluten they stated they were not gluten-free.

I had the gluten free pancakes and they were great! They have a separate griddle for the gluten free pancakes which is nice. They can make gluten free waffles, but they don’t have a dedicated gluten free waffle maker. The server offered to give it a good wipe down and then make me a waffle on there, but I didn’t think it was worth the risk of cross contamination.
